Across the world, the scourge of human trafficking continues, staining and ruining the lives of innocent people. Recent years have seen an uptick in awareness of human trafficking; however, there’s still a long road ahead.
Traffickers feed on fear and ignorance to commit their crimes against humanity. Furthermore, these predators are turning to the internet to find victims. Traffickers will often pose as friends or even romantic partners before revealing their true colors.
The only thing standing between slavery and freedom are the actions of ordinary people like us–doing our part to raise awareness and prevent exploitation before it occurs. #WalkForFreedom

One of those organizations just so happens to be A21. On Saturday, A21 hosted various walks in different parts of the world to raise awareness about human trafficking.
